Home Learning

Home Learning

Home learning is an essential part of the curriculum at Hampstead School.  It improves students’ thinking and memory and helps students develop positive study skills and habits that will serve them well throughout life.  Research shows that regular home learning encourages students to use their time wisely, and teaches them to work independently whilst taking responsibility for their own learning.

Home learning allows students to review and practise what has been covered in class and helps students to get ready for their next lesson.  In some subjects, home learning helps students learn to use resources, such as libraries, reference materials, and websites to find information encouraging them to explore subjects more fully than classroom time permits.  It also allows parents to understand more about what students are learning in school.
